Community Litter Picking and the Big ‘C’ word

No, it's not James May’s catchphrase. Of course, I mean Coronavirus. It feels like we have talked about nothing else this year!  We have been living with Covid-19 for well over six months and I feel that the cracks are really starting to show.

Changes afoot for LARAC

Durk Reyner, LARAC Vice-Chair

Normally at this time of year we would be looking forward to getting together at the annual UK LARAC Conference. The ongoing Covid situation means we cannot get together in person, but we have lined up a two-day virtual conference instead. It is free for LARAC members so if you have not yet booked, take a look at the programme and get yourself booked on.  It also means we will not have the AGM in person this year but again that will be an online affair, not during conference this year, it will take place on Thursday 22 October 2pm to 3pm. This year more than most we need LARAC members to attend as there are proposals for some key changes to the way in which LARAC is structured.

We are excited  to be able to start telling you about the Re-Gen Academy which will provide bursary places for local authorities to benefit from learning and development activities from CIWM. To ensure we make best use of this funding opportunity, we need to understand what the learning and development priorities are in local authorities.
